BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Carton Brewing Company
New Jersey, United States
cartonbrewing.com

Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The key to a sessionable beer is the way it evolves over time well spent. Here we took an extremely dark malt bill and smashed it against the sweetness of milk, then we wafted black currant notes of Bullion hops through the middle. Nuanced to keep it an interesting part of a gathering while neither dominating nor being inconsequential to banter. Drink Carton Of Milk because it does a session good.

On tap a Essex Junction, poured a nice dark brown/black with a 1 finger head. Strong coffee flavor (for me, I don't drink coffee) with a nice, creamy mouthfeel. Smooth finish.

My first carton beer and I would definitely try more of them.

In a 4-beer carton sampler at Blend. CoM was on tap with Nitro.
Not exciting, The nitro definitely made it nice and smooth, but roughness was not really a problem to begin with.

Good beer, but a little lacking in flavor to be taken seriously.
